vegas. then at the annual u.n. meeting where rogue nations are calling for a new world order, obama snubbed key allies and skipped meetings with world leaders so he could be on tv. >> so how much of the campaign is this going to be? the romney campaign is debating how forcefully to engage the libya issue. some are advising it's good to use as a stand-in for overall failures of the president. romney tries to do that in a wall street op-ed writing disturbing developments are sweeping across the greater middle east, these developments are not, as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk. yet amid this upheaval, our country seems to be at the mercy. >> the response was slow, it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of bagger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling lit literally before our eyes an on tvs.
ready for wednesday's rumble. >> well, the president's the president. he was at the u.n. giving two major speeches. he's been dealing with all sorts of international business, domestic business. he is at the white house a lot of the time preparing and i can tell you that his -- they have had to cancel times when he might or might not have been able to do preparation. it's my understanding mitt romney spent four or five days secluded somewhere. had five debates in 24 hours or 48 hours. and has senator portman with him every day on the airplane practicing. i'm here. i'm not traveling with the president or doing any of this. >> more expectations setting from senator kerrly and also making the point that being the job of president gets in the way of debate prep and leaving town and leaving washington helps for the president and doesn't hurt, wolf, picked a battleground state, nevada, to do the debate prep and going to other states. >> not far from denver, either. >> an easy jump over. also learning new details about how mitt romney's preparing for his first face to face contest with the
. there is fallout over the attack in libya. there are increasing calls for a hearing and our u.n. ambassador susan rice to resign. the obama team dill giving conflicting accounts of the white house response. martha: i'm martha maccallum. the romney campaign is joining this growing chorus of lawmakers. senator john mccain saying the administration's response was inept and ignorant and susan rice blaming it on a spontaneous protest was inexcusable. >> it's either willful ignorance or abysmal ignorance to think people come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and heavy weapons pant attack goes on for hours. bill: both sides are complaining. governor romney's team says the white house is still getting its story mixed up. >> reporter: democrats say republicans are politicizing the tragic attack that cost of life of four americans. the republicans say the white house is cover ugging up the details for political reasons. here is axlerod. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you are the responsible party, when you are the administration and you have a respo
that killed our ambassador, chris stevens and others on the ground. on september 16th, the u.n. ambassador for this administration came on this program and this is how she described whether or not this was a deliberate act, a terrorist attack. this is what sizen wright said at that time. >> let me tell you best information we have at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo. which were prompted of course by the video. >> there's a caveat there, she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that the libyan president said al qaeda was behind the attack. and days later, the president's spokesman, jay carney says th
. >> the turks took the issue to the u.n. security council where russia has consistently blocked any kind of action against the syrian regime. >> neither nato nor the u.n. security council has actually made the kind of decision that turkey wants on this issue, so in a way, it finds itself isolated and it's a position of great discomfort to the turkish prime minister. >> moments ago, the u.n. security council condemned the mortar attack on the turkish border town, but the turkish army believes it already has what it needs to cross into syria if provoked again. >> bret: jennifer, thank you. still ahead, florida's voter fraud scandal is getting nasty for republicans. first, certain words are so inflammatory, they're almost unheard of here in washington. a republican senator uses one for the obama administration does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, dro
news alert, moments ago the state department can defended u.n. ambassador susan rice after new calls went out this weekend demanding her resignation. congressional critics are angry that ms. rice was talking to the media some four days after a terror attack killed four americans in libya and telling reporters across this nation that it was a spontaneous protest that was behind the attack when fox news and now other news outlets have reported that the white house knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack and not some spontaneous event. the administration is maintaining that they gave us the information as it evolved and as it came to be known by them. there is, at a minimum, some question about that. the white house is also facing tough new questions about the president's decision to attend a campaign event in vegas within 24 hours of the attack. white house senior adviser david plouffe -- keep in mind, this is the first time they've put the senior advisers out there since all this happened -- but they were on the sunday shows this weekend, and mr. plouffe was challenged outr
positions so it is still a very dangerous situation along that long border. trace? >>trace: action in the u.n. could have been the wrong word, you are right. >> bringing in middle east expert michael singh, a former senior director for middle east affairs at the national security council. you have, michael, the situation where syria has apologized. you have turkey saying there is no appetite for war. the question becomes, can bashar al-assad handle fighting from in his country the rebels as well as outside of his country from turkey? that could be enough to crush the regime? >>guest: there is is no doubt bashar al-assad wants to keep turkey out of this. that is why we see not just syria apologizing but the russians who are the main diplomatic protector coming in and trying to contain this situation. what you see from the west, also, frankly, is a desire to contain the actual spillover here, the fighting here, and move this into the united nations security council to try to take advantage of this, to spur action in the council. >>trace: you use the word "contain" and that brings the next quest
, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
for the resignation of u.n. bambass dorsusan rice who, said that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising against an anti-muslim video. >> five days went by. we have reports that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack, yet, they sent her out to say things that were absolutely false and continue to do so, which is, again... really either as i say, willful, ignorance or abysmal lack of knowledge of the facts. >> reporter: but the administration claims it was so complex, they didn't know for sure it was a terror attack. and david axelrod saying, we don't want a president who shoots first and aims later. >> governor romney leaped out on this libya issue on the first day. and was terribly mistaken about what he said. that is not what you want in a president of the united states. and as for senator mccain, for whom i have great respect, he has disapproved of our approach in libya from the beginning. >> reporter: democrats say the focus needs to be on protecting american personnel in the future. >> thank you. another suspected incident of a deadly insider attack in afghan
/7, but apparently not during u.n. meetings. as "the new york post" highlighted here, the question about whether there was a snub not meeting with the israeli leader, e president is on "the view" just as u.n. world leaders are meeting. that was the headline of "the new york post" with their own point of view there. but is this -- is he not performing all of the critical roles of the presidency, particularly with the foreign policy crisis? with so many questions about management of the middle east, when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time of so much concern over iran? >> this president has been obviously in constant contact throughout the four years with world leaders. he's obviously been in deep consultation with prime minister netanyahu. obviously our administration has been in deep consultation with the defense and intelligence agencies in israel. so this president has been very, very focused on strengthens our alliances. he's built an unprecedented global effort in terms of sanctions against iran. so this president has led, an
the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet, they sent her out, to say things that were absolutely false and continued to do so. and then, as mccain says the violence in lib rah clicks, with the story and al-qaeda diminished. >> for its part. the administration claims the situation in benghazi was so complex, they didn't know for sure that it was a terrorist attack although now they're saying it is. and the obama campaign advisor turned the criticism back to mitt romney. and governor romney leaked that on the libya issue on the first day and was terribly mistake been what he said. and that's not what you want in a president of the united states. >> and democrats say now protecting american personnel going forward, harris. >> harris: you mentioned something i had not read the complexity of the issue around benghazi, the follow-up i would want to ask, well, could you j
